"Shop with a Cop" with the Niagara County Sheriff's Office

Posted at 8:52 AM, Dec 09, 2018

The Niagara County Sheriff's Office teamed up with Walmart to host the 7th Annual Shop with a Cop event Saturday.

Children were paired up with deputies who then traveled to the Walmart on South Transit Road in Lockport in a patrol car.

The children were able to shop for gifts for themselves and/or family members.

Following their shopping, the children were treated to lunch courtesy of Walmart.

"This event is all about building relationships with the children and letting them know we are here for them," said Niagara County Sheriff James R. Voutour.

The Sheriff's Office received a grant from the Walmart Foundation which allowed for the purchase of gift cards for the children to use while they shop.
